The two accused have pleaded guilty in the court under Section 164 to the murder of a schoolboy named Sohail Parvez 18 years ago. The accused made a confessional statement in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate Magistrate Shakil Ahmed on Wednesday afternoon.
The accused are Saiful Islam, 33, son of Abdul Jalil of Baraid village in Saturia upazila and Badal Mia, 30, son of Sona Mia.
The deceased was identified as Sohail Parvez, son of late Habibur Rahman, a school teacher of Uttar Baraid village in Baraid union of Saturia upazila of the district.
Manikganj PBI Additional Superintendent of Police MKH Jahangir Hossain said the deceased Sohail Parvez was a 2004 SSC quality improvement candidate. He has been running a poultry farm since 2003. On the afternoon of June 15, 2004, a local man named Yunus Ali called Sohail to buy him a cheap motorcycle. After missing for two days, Sohail’s family received a letter on June 17 demanding a ransom of Tk 7 lakh. Later on June 29, Sohail’s father filed a case against the four at the Saturia police station. The case was later investigated by the Thana Police, DB Police and CID and the chargesheet was filed in the court on November 14, 2009. The court was not satisfied with the investigation during the trial of the case and on November 24, 2020, the PBI directed Manikganj to investigate.
He added that the court granted a three-day remand to the main accused Younus Ali, 35, who was arrested a month ago after a thorough analysis of the incident 18 years ago. Later, during interrogation in remand, accused Yunus Ali, with the help of Saiful and Badal, suffocated Sohail to death and floated him in the river. According to him, Saiful, an Ansar member from Narayanganj, was arrested on Sunday and Badal Mia from Baraid village in Saturia on Tuesday. They later made a confessional statement in court. Another accused in the case is absconding.
